Fonda discusses why she set out to make the film and the film's "gentle" approach to the issues it portrays. Fonda talks about the ramifications of the implementation of the Paris Peace Accords for both North and South Vietnam. They discuss Fonda and Hayden's easy passage between North and South Vietnam and meeting Fonda's Vietnamese counterpart. They also talk about child-rearing practices and collective interdependence in North Vietnam. Fonda and McIsaac take phone calls at the end (phone calls edited out).
